Rather than wrap around the chassis rail like the old top bracket did, the new one clamps either side with 4 bolts. We found that, as the Ranger evolved, more and more pipes and cables have been run along the chassis rail. Moving these out of the way for the bracket to slide up the rail has become quite time consuming. We believe this new bracket could save as much as 20 minutes from each install.
All LA-28 kits are now being shipped with this new bracket.
